I have a GridView being populated using a SPROC in SQL SERVER 2008 in an ASP.NET app.
In the grid two fields are being compared.
PromisedDate  and  ShippedDate

both are datetime

If  ShippedDate>PromisedDate   the color of the background of that record is changed to red.

Up to this point the PromisedDate has not been used, and there are lots of 'NULL' records.
How can I handle the NULLs in this situation of a datetime?
